About Hot Yoga Athens Studio
Welcome to Hot Yoga Athens! My love and passion for yoga and Greece led me to the decision to return to my homeland and to devote my time and energy to what truly and fully makes me happy. From summer 2015, I took over Hot Yoga, aiming to create a beautiful and relaxing space, where each person can enjoy their practice, the services offered and to leave feeling rejuvenated. Having deeply rooted faith in the Hot Yoga team, and deriving from a desire for evolution and innovation, I believe that the space we have created is an ideal refuge for us all. About Niko After years of finance studies, BSCs, MSCs, CFAs, I decided to leave the busy lights of the City of London, in search of the inner light within. Initially trained in Hatha and Vinyasa flow (Sally Parkes â€“ UK), I have since studied Hot (Kristin Campbell â€“ Canada) and Pregnancy (Nadia Narain â€“ UK) with Triyoga, a world renounced yoga center, where I worked as a teacher. I continued my studies, in search of new and innovative yoga styles and schools and found: Broga (Matt Miller â€“ Los Angeles), a unique style targeted to Athletes and Budokon (Cameron Shayne â€“ Miami), a style with artful movement that incorporates Martials arts. More recently, I completed my 300hrs of training and graduated from the Jivamukti School of Yoga; a school that is considered to be one of the top worldwide. With this method, I found my spiritual home and the light I was searching for in my personal, as well as professional teaching life. Graduating at the feet of my mentors; Sharon Gannon, David Life, Rima Rani Rabbath and Moritz Ulrich. Currently undergoing 500hrs-advanced training in Tantra Vinyasa with the world renowned Sianna Sherman. With over 1,000hrs of training, and following 11 years in London, I decided to change my home base and moved back to my mother land Greece. I bought Hot Yoga the brand and Hot Yoga Athens, the studio in Psychiko. I now spend my time between London and Athens, teaching classes internationally in Berlin, Japan, Bali, New York, Boston and California. In the past few years, I have undertaken a series of seminars, workshops, trainings and taken classes with a list of internationally acclaimed teachers and masters of their craft. I have enjoyed the fast and furious side of vinyasa flow with celebrity American born and London resident Julie Montague, the fast and fun side of Rocket yoga with the queen of Rocket â€“ first line up of teachers by the founder of rocket Lary Sulz; Amme Poulton, the slow and controlled creative flow of the awesome Naomi Absalom, the handstand king Patrick Beach, the inspirational founder of Dharma Mittra, the innovative Anna forest, creator of Forest yoga, the arm balance master Dylan Warner, the flexible Kino Mc Gregor, the queen of strength and softness Elena Brower, the qigong master Mimi Kuo Deemer, the yin and restorative yoga expert Judie Hanson, the tantra vinyasa master from America Sianna Sherman, the inspirational Iyengar master Simon Low, the Jivamukti queen Emma Henry and my Jivamukti mentor from Germany; the charismatic Moritz Ulrich.
